When you want to make a Windows desktop icon from any picture, use Any to Icon or ArtIcons Pro. It requires a minute to craft a great-looking icon of any image file. Just choose the resolution and transparency!
Have you tried personalizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Selecting a directory icon needs that you specify a picture in a valid Windows icon type. You are able to download many windows desktop graphics from the Internet, but what if you have a specific picture in mind and just want to make a desktop icon out of your own picture?
If you need to make a Windows desktop icon out of any picture, you need an application to do the icon transformation. It so happens that Windows does not have any built-in icon converter to make Windows icons from pictures. How can you create a Windows icon in this situation? Use a third-party tool like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!
Weird! A professional application to make and transform icons? They must need a skillful designer to operate, yes? Wrong! Anyone is able to make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vienna icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you require to create your own icon files is a picture you like and an icon conversion tool.
It only takes a minute to make a great-looking icon out of any image file. To convert an image to a Windows icon, simply start Any to Icon and add files to the program. Any to Icon reads BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and transforms them to ICO files. Define options for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and transparency. Shape the picture with a cut instrument, and you've got a native Windows icon that you can assign to any folder! The new icon already contains all the resolutions that are required to place your directory correctly in Windows Explorer no matter what view resolution you select. Compact view, list view or big view will appear equally great, with cool transparency options and sleek borders.
